Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Sudden Bill Dorn gets under way when a prospector strikes gold. Within what seems to be minutes, the entire population of a nearby town packs its mining equipment and race off to the lucky strike. One of the few speculators keeping his wits about him is the eponymous hero, played by Buck Jones. That's because he already has his hands full contending with heroine Lorna Kent (Noel Francis), fetching senorita Diana (Evelyn Brent), and black-hearted villain Mike Bundy (Harold Hodge). By the time Universal's Sudden Bill Dorn was released in early January of 1938, Buck Jones had already left the studio and pitched camp at Columbia.
